Trending - Make America Great Again Ultra Comfort Edition Hat - Mesh Back / Netback, Snap Back, Screen Printed Trucker Hat
The design of a trucker cap is similar to that of a baseball cap, with a slightly curved bill in front, a cap constructed from six almost triangular gores, and a button on top. Instead of being made of cotton fabric like a typical baseball cap, the front section of a trucker hat above the bill is foam, and the rest is plastic mesh for breathability.
The foam front of the hat stands up straight and stiff, which makes the trucker hat taller than most baseball caps, allowing for a higher profile - appropriate for the already distinctive Maga America Great Again motto across the front.
There is an adjustable plastic snap or closure in the back to ensure that one size fits most, commonly referred to as a “snap back,” for its distinctive snapping sound made when it clicks shut.
The mesh or “netback” design was intended to make the cap much cooler in the sun or hot weather for the comfort of the wearer.
Once a mainstay of truckers as they switched from the standard company branded “mechanic caps,” of the 1940s and 1950s, into the 1970’s when these so called “gimme caps,” named such for commonly being used in marketing promotions, started coming into popularity for their comfort of wear and ease of even temperature distribution.
On a hot and sunny day, a trucker cap offers the best of both worlds - protection from the sun, and a cooling portion that doesn’t trap heat, but rather offers ventilation even on the warmest of days.
At this price you can get yourself several trucker hats to relax in, because at Ten Dollar Trump Hats we have 11 distinctive colors. If you’d like to get yourself and yours a handful of MAGA hats, remember we also offer additional discounts on bulk orders.
We’d like to see more Americans walking around with a thought provoking Make America Great Again hat.

About Baseball Caps:
In 1860, the Brooklyn Excelsiors wore the ancestor of the modern rounded-top baseball cap, which featured a long peak and a button on top, and by 1900, the "Brooklyn style" cap became popular
During the 1940s, latex rubber became the stiffening material inside the hat and the modern baseball cap was born. The peak, also known in certain areas as the "bill" or "brim", was designed to protect a player's eyes from the sun. Typically, the peak was much shorter in the earlier days of the baseball hat.
Also, the hat has become more structured, versus the overall "floppy" cap of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The baseball cap was and still is an important means by which to identify a team. Often the logo, mascot, or team's initial was placed on the cap. Usually, the cap was also fashioned in the official colors of a particular team.
The baseball cap is a part of the traditional baseball uniform worn by players, with the brim pointing forward to shield the eyes from the sun. Since the 1980s varieties of the cap have become a common fashion accessory, particularly in the United States.

Fitted baseball caps — those without an adjuster — are normally sewn in six sections, and may be topped with a matching fabric-covered button (also called a squatchee) on the crown. Metal grommets or fabric eyelets are often sewn or attached near the top of each of the six sections of fabric to provide ventilation. In some cases, the rear sections of the crown are made of net-like mesh material for extra ventilation. The peak is typically stiffened by a sewn-in piece of paperboard or stiff plastic.
The front may be soft, or may be stiffened by buckram to display a logo more clearly.
Baseball Cap Six Panel Construction:
Ball cap crowns are traditionally made of six triangular panels sewn together in a round shape. As seen on the left-hand model, this creates a seam running down the middle of the front of the hat. This is the style referred to as a six-panel.
Baseball Cap Five Panel Construction:
Printers, embroiderers, and other artists began demanding caps be made without the seam, allowing for uninterrupted images on the front of the hat. Thus was the darted front panel introduced, replacing two panels with an oddly shaped one that would serve the purpose without the seam. The end result is the five-panel cap. (Five-panel would also come to refer to the cyclist cap, but that's an entirely different style of construction.)
Structured Hats And Unstructured Hats:
Some caps, when you remove them from your head, still retain the shape of the cap. Others, when you remove the cap, the crown collapses into limp fabric. This is the difference between structured and unstructured caps.
Structured caps will be reinforced with a sturdier fabric called buckram, which is essentially cotton fabric dipped in a plastic-like bath. In the structured hat, you can see the white buckram reinforcement behind the front two panels. For contrast, the unstructured hat on the right does not have the white buckram panels.
Use By Military and Paramilitary:
Some armed forces use baseball caps as part of their uniforms, including the United States Navy and United States Coast Guard. Used mostly with the utility uniform and coveralls, the baseball cap usually has a command logo on the front to denote command affiliation.
Baseball caps of a particular color are worn to denote a specific function of a person or particular job. For example, in the United States submarine force, red baseball caps are worn by drill monitors who facilitate and critique members of the boat's crew during drills.
In the United States Army, parachute riggers wear red baseball caps and parachute instructors wear black baseball caps as part of their uniform. In various squadrons of the United States Air Force’s civilian auxiliary, squadron-distinctive baseball caps have been issued as headgear (or "cover") for the Battle Dress Uniform, typically displaying squadron colors, squadron number, and/or squadron patch. Although the BDUs have their own cover, a patrol cap in M81 Woodland, some squadrons have opted for more distinctive covers.
In many United States police forces, the baseball cap is worn as a more practical alternative to the traditional peaked cap or campaign hat, the latter of which is generally used by Sheriff’s departments and state police forces. This is more common on the West Coast, whereas in eastern states the traditional peaked cap is more prominent. A notable exception is the San Francisco Police Department, where peaked caps are still worn regularly. In Slovenia, policemen on motorcycles wear baseball caps as a part of their uniform, when they remove the helmet. The baseball cap is also commonly used by private security companies as a cheap, practical piece of uniform headgear.
There has been a marked trend in recent years among police forces and other uniformed bodies throughout the world to substitute cheap and comfortable baseball caps for peaked caps and other traditional headdresses. In Britain the baseball cap has the additional advantage of being unisex and suitable for wear by both male and female officers. During 2017 the Northamptonshire, Cheshire and Lancashire police forces adopted specially strengthened baseball caps known as "Bump Caps", to replace the helmets and bowler hats previously worn.
The Finnish Police uses a baseball cap, which is considered an official identification device and cannot be worn or even displayed by civilians, and has mostly replaced the traditional side cap. Many armed police units around the world, notably SWAT in the United States and Metropolitan Police’s Specialist Firearms Command in the United Kingdom, often wear baseball caps to shield their eyes from the sun where a full helmet would be excessive.
About Mesh Hats, Or Trucker Hats:
In place of the usual four cloth panels finishing the back, panels crafted of plastic mesh are used instead. The wide, open weave of this mesh allows the head to cool much faster, and the plastic mesh is less sweat-absorbent than cloth, making the style ideal for hot weather and high amounts of physical labor.
Some, but not all, trucker hats will come with a secondary difference: the foam front. The foam front is highly absorbent, serving both as a sweat guard for the wearer as well as an ideal surfacre for airbrush artists and other hat customizers.
This classic cap fastening system allows the user to adjust their cap size using a series of plastic snaps to hold the cap in place at the user-adjusted size. These fasteners have a proven history of wear and reliability.
About Hook and Loop or Velcro Closures:
Hook and loop closures allow for exact fitting as they can be physically repositioned by the user to any size within the hook and loop bands on the back of the cap/hat.
About the Brim:
Our hats have three inch peaks, also known in certain areas as the "bill" or "brim", designed to protect the wearer’s eyes from the sun.
About Green Underbills:
A hanger-on from the days when baseball caps were meant primarily for playing baseball, the green underbill is a "vintage" style choice for ball caps. Originally, this element was provided to absorb as much of the light shining off the field grass as possible. Later variants emerged using grey, or sometimes black, on the underside of the bill for maximum light absorption. We do not carry green underbills. On all of our caps, the underbill matches the bill.
